Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
- Though we haven’t even given Michael Jackson enough time to rise from the dead like Jesus, there are already talks of a Michael Jackson biopic. Different methods are being considered like using archive and live -show footage or maybe having Jamie Foxx play young Jackson and Johnny Depp play um, white Jackson. I’m not sure how politically correct that scenario would be but God I would love to see them try to pull it off! [PopCrunch]
Don’t have time to give yourself a manicure? These leather-and-nails gloves by London-designer Dominic Jones are the perfect answer. Slip them on, and you’ve got yourself an insta-cure, with permanent, perfectly-painted fake fingernails. The handware with hardware comes in two different styles: black leather with silver nails or hot pink leather with gold nails. These aggro-accessories are part of a punky new line from Jones — other accoutrements include taloned rings, fanged studs, and toothy necklaces. The designer’s on-site lookbook features the fashionable body-mods worn by the likes of Alice Dellal and Elizabeth Jagger, so they come It Girl-approved. If you’re thinking about taking your look a little punk this fall, these are sure do the trick. Just try not to get into a catfight. They look like they could do some real damage.

A lot of “new web sites” toddle into our line of vision and they’re largely forgettable. But SheWrites.com, a social networking site for women writers, is way cool. You can ask for help finding an agent, promote your books, articles and blog posts, or read interviews with beloved authors. And, of course, you can feel warm ‘n fuzzy inside about being part of community that truly sympathizes with the pain that comes from sitting too long with a warm laptop on your thighs!
I just joined and so did Amelia. If you’re a writer, won’t you join us? Keep reading »
“I’m 33 and I have a great job, friends, and family. While I’ve had serious relationships in the past and go on a fair amount of dates, I’m still alone. Why am I still single?” -Tracy, Colorado
“I see an exciting adventure in your future, a new sexual experience that forever changes you,” she said, tracing the sole of my foot with one soft fingertip. Her husband grinned at me from the bed. I sat half-naked in the overstuffed armchair and trembled with nerves.
This is not how I’d imagined my first — or any — threesome. I’m not bisexual, and I can count the number of times I’ve been physically attracted to a woman on one hand, with two fingers left over. Keep reading »
On a recent trip to my childhood home I sat in my kitchen in a daze. I was daydreaming about my childhood self playing in the corner of the room where my toy kitchen set used to be. I spent hours in front of that mini-kitchen and despite all the playtime back then, today I dread stepping foot into a real kitchen to cook real food. But I know if I could still play in that fake kitchen I’d be having the time of my life. In my daydreaming, fantasy world childhood items were not deemed inappropriate for adults. During that whole longing to be young again moment, I remembered a post I wrote a few weeks ago on the exact opposite topic, Grown Up Things For The Little Ones. So to add a little balance to the Frisky, here’s a list of childhood items that adults should totally be allowed to enjoy, even if they’re meant for youngsters:
Sure it’s a pain to go to the bathroom while wearing a onsie but that doesn’t make it a less fun PJ substitute. It’s practically a shame that most people can’t even remember the day when they sported the one-piece pajama. The foot covers alone guarantee feeling little again. [Pajama City]
Mamma mia! Why have we never seen spaghetti ice cream before? Italo-philes can buy a hand-pump spaghetti ice cream maker to squeeze out a plate of ice cream or gelato “noodles” and garnish with strawberry sauce and grated white chocolate, grated almonds or coconut flakes for “tomato sauce” and “cheese.”
The hand-held spaghetti makers run from $12 to $22, while the ones for commercial use run in the hundreds. You can even buy inserts to make “fettucine” or “lasagna.” Too cute. Also, we’re hungry. [Spaghetti Ice Cream] Keep reading »
Tutus have been ignored for too long, cast to the side and not taken seriously as legitimate clothing. Enough is enough. Nobody puts
baby tutu in the corner. There are ways to wear tutu-esque skirts without looking too much like a failed ballerina with a sad inability to let go of the glory days. We’ll tell you how after the jump. Keep reading »
As the humidity and temperature spike, so do our chances of heat-induced fashion problems. Every time I step onto a bus or subway or slide into a steaming car, my body sticks to the plastic on the seat and my clothes cling to my legs, delivering me to my destination stinky, clammy and busted-looking. But, no more! Here are a few ways to stay fresh and sweat-stain free. Keep reading »
